February 14, 2012 With the debut of DataDirector 4.0 came the mandatory switch over to a new version of DataScanner, version 1.3. Some features that users liked in earlier versions of DataScanner, such as the highlighting of blanks on exams, aren't currently available in the new DataScanner software. DataDirector is working on fixing these problems, and a new release is expected at the end of March to resolve such issues. The new version will also update automatically when new releases of the software occur.
While the installation of the new version in March won't be mandatory, the ZOOM! team is recommending that users upgrade if possible. Keep an eye on the DataDirector message board on the Overview page to find out when exactly the DataScanner update comes out.
